The City of North Vancouver Public Art Program is inviting Expressions of Interest from experienced weavers working in the local indigenous tradition, to create a contemporary Coast Salish woven wall hanging for the entrance lobby of the North Vancouver City Library.
The Coast Salish Woven Wall Hanging project has two proposed components:
- A contemporary Coast Salish weaving (approximate size – maximum 6’ high by 10’ wide) that reflects and honours the territories on which the North Vancouver City Library is built.
- At least two events (with support from library programming staff) to engage and educate community members and library staff during the creation of the weaving, such as in-person or virtual presentations, demonstrations, or opportunities to participate in weaving.
North Vancouver’s Public Art Program is “committed to creating art in public places to celebrate and stimulate the cultural spirit and identity of the community” and to enrich the experience of the public realm for the immediate community and broader public. The program is pleased to announce this new opportunity.
